Village Nurseries Buys Miramar Wholesale Nurseries
Village Nurseries Wholesale, LLC, a specialty grower for landscape professionals, recently purchased Miramar Wholesale Nurseries, in San Diego, Calif. for an undisclosed amount.
Established in 1993, Miramar Wholesale Nurseries provides landscape plant materials for commercial property managers and landscape contractors in southern California. Its 200-acre site houses a 170-acre wholesale operation, a commercial landscape center and a team of horticulturists.
The landscape center will serve as Village Nurseries’ first super landscape center at twice the size of the company’s other four California centers. The acquisition will also expand Village Nurseries’ growing acreage from 700 acres to 870 acres.
“This acquisition is important for two reasons,” explained David House, Village Nurseries CEO. “First, it allows us to bolster our presence in San Diego by annexing an excellent wholesale nursery in a great climate for growing plants. Second, it positions Village Nurseries to enlarge and increase our offerings to meet the needs of a resurgent real estate market in which landscape architects and designers will be demanding more plantings, and the retail segment will be demanding greater variety for home gardens.”
